With the Wisconsin Badgers kicking off winter season conditioning final 7 days, it is worth having a glimpse/catching up at some of the previous associates of the method who have built information just lately.
B5Q confirmed final 7 days that restricted close Kyle Penniston is in the Transfer Portal, but searching again in the earlier thirty day period-plus, two other Badgers located residences at other college or university places right after short stops in JUCO programs.
Two previous Wisconsin players also located new coaching positions—one at the college or university amount at a common university with a common previous ex-mentor, and the other being at the exact large college he has coached at but now leading the football method.
QB Karé Lyles
The previous Wisconsin quarterback tweeted on Jan. 28 that he will perform at FCS method Southern Illinois, which is a aspect of the Missouri Valley Conference.
Lyles remaining the Wisconsin football method right after spring procedures final season. He performed for Scottsdale Group College this earlier drop, and judging from beneath, he put up fairly the stats.

This is from a means again throughout the early signing period, but B5Q by no means bought the possibility to point out it. Carriere-Williams introduced his intention to depart Wisconsin just days just before the 2018 season opener against Western Kentucky.
Like Lyles, he took the JUCO route and enrolled at Independence Group College in Kansas.
On Dec. 18, Utah State and its head mentor, Gary Andersen, named Caputo as safeties mentor. The previous Badgers security and LSU defensive graduate assistant naturally performed for Andersen at UW for two seasons in 2013-14.
Caputo performed in 53 online games, starting off 40 contests, as a member of Wisconsin’s protection. He built a big impression on the secondary when Andersen and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda came to Madison.
The previous security went to Baton Rouge to be a grad assistant under Aranda right after a short cup of espresso in the NFL, and now he will have the opportunity to teach Andersen’s next era of safeties.
I could not close this posting devoid of information about the previous Wisconsin stroll-on and restricted close (and admittedly, my Wander-On This Way co-author). Brookfield Central Large College named Nellis as its head mentor on Wednesday. He succeeds Jed Kennedy, who in another Wisconsin connected coached 1 Melvin Gordon when Kennedy led the Kenosha Bradford method years back.
Nellis performed at Wisconsin as a reserve restricted close from 2001-05 throughout the last years of the Barry Alvarez period, earning a scholarship his last two years as a junior and senior. He has been the co-offensive line mentor at Brookfield Central for the earlier five years.
If Brookfield Central appears like a common large college for Wisconsin enthusiasts, previous Badgers Joe Thomas, Ben Strickland, Brad Nortman and Chikwe Obasih all hail from the large college based in the southeastern Wisconsin region.
[In a full circle of B5Q-Wisconsin connections, former B5Q scribe and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel prep sports reporter Curt Hogg wrote up an article on Nellis’ hiring. It’s a small world after all.]
